    Project Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Palm Beach, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Pratt & Whitney (West Palm Beach, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Invited to a superday my second one. All went well. Some managers were rarely new. They said they would definitely get back to us in two weeks and now they do not answer emails or calls. It's like I used up my time but they don't have time to get back to the applicants. It's like they need to fill up the superday tables so they can justify to the customer that they are trying their best to get the work completed. If you have alot of experience or are too old you will not get hired.

    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, GA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pratt & Whitney (Columbus, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Day long interviews with 5-6 people spanning HR to Engineering to Management. They asked a lot of soft questions and situational awareness questions. A lot of the interviewers asked the same questions, so it was a matter of spending time re-answering them to each person. We also took a factory tour and ended with some questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a time when you were faced with conflict. How did you react?   Answer Question
    • Tell us about a time you worked in a group or led a team.   Answer Question
    • What do you want to be when you grow up?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Decided Columbus, GA wasn't the right location for me. Factory was pretty interesting, the town didn't seem great.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hartford, CT

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Pratt & Whitney (Hartford, CT) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted directly by the hiring manager. Good start. Had a strong (phone) conversation and they said they'd get back to me after they interviewed a few more candidates. Within a week, HR contacted me and said the hiring manager wanted to bring me in for a panel interview. They gave me some dates and I verified my availability. I reached out a week later after hearing nothing ...

    Well, here we are 4 weeks later. With SIX unanswered emails/vmails to HR and the hiring manager.

    Unacceptable and unprofessional. I'm glad I learned this now before going to work for such an organization.
